RINCON, Ga. (WTOC) - A woman has gotten her job back at the Lowe’s in Rincon after she was attacked trying to stop shoplifting, according to the company.

Donna Hansbrough was punched multiple times after she said she tried to stop suspects from leaving with a cart full of stolen goods.

Hansbrough was fired because Lowe’s company policy states employees cannot intervene during shoplifting or robbery incidents.
